New orchestra elective planned for 2016-17 school yearInterested students must speak to their counselor
The first on-campus orchestra elective class is being considered for the 2016-17 school year. Principal Donna Levy is currently working on the details of this course.
“Everybody on campus seems to be musically inclined and I think it will inspire school spirit,” Levy said. “It would be nice to have the class play at assemblies or at graduation.”
Although the instructor for the course has not yet been determined, Levy will be meeting with the Clark County School District (CCSD) Fine Arts Department to discuss the location of the class, funding and other details.
“There are a lot of details that still need to be worked out—like funding for the instruments and stands,” Levy said. “We have intentions of going forward with this class.”
In 2009, students were able to attend a late-bird orchestra class off-campus.
